I am grateful for good ones :)

We always get to gether for our birthdays. This time it was for Mindy and Myself, although my birthday is in May, I was in China and Kami was in Europe so it was postponed til now.

I really love these girls, I have been friends with them for many years, I worked with them all at Life Line but my relationship with them goes beyond just that.

Jaime Palmer is my greatest friend. I absolutley adore her. She is an amazing mom and always has good advice. She opened her home to me and let me live with her and Brian and Olivia for 6 months... I actually loved it too much- good food, and conversation. When I moved out it sucked and I really did think about moving back in. Anyway, she is a good friend, always supportive and I am really grateful to have a friend like her.

Kami Black and I are a lot a like, stubborn, feisty, but loveable :). I too think that she is a great friend, I trust that she will always tell me the truth and that she will listen to me if I need a lending ear. Kami is tuff too, I like women that are not wussy, and Kami is not. She is really strong not only physically but emotionally too.

Jesse Blankenstein and I have had our days... but in the end we are still friends and I love her. I think that Jesse is funny, she is honest, opinionated and very fun to hike with.. She is also a very cute mom.

Mindy Bichler is just so great. She always makes me smile because she is always happy. I enjoy being around her for this reason. She is very thoughtful and selfless.. she is always accepting and makes you feel okay even if you feel stupid, embarressed or uncomfortable.

Like I said, I have known these girls for a long time.....
It is funny how life changes and we get so busy. It took several tries for us to get our schedules to match up.. But we finally did and it was good times. Jesse, Mindy and Jaime all have little kids- so this often becomes the topic of our conversation. I love all their cute little kids, but hearing the stories about nipples, labor, and other such things make me question ever being a mom... haha... I think Kami too.

Anyway Thanks guys for taing me out it was a lot of FUN!

REAL to the FINALS!!!!

Lyle and I got to go the the REAL soccer game this weekend at the new stadium.. Thank you to Cara, my good friend who had amazing seats. The stadium is REALLY cool, and we had a great time... Lyle loved the Hot Dogs and Junk food as always
( I actually love it to but I always feel guilty after... he doesn't).

It was so much fun, although I didn't really understand all the rules- it was amazing to watch how much control the players have of the ball with just their feet- and how muscular the players legs are always keeps my attention! I am a Leg Lady... Lyle finally had to tell me to stop pointing out all the nice quads :) The weather was perfect, Lyles company is always the greatest, but unfortunatley I had one of my most embarrasing moments this night...

We drove the motorcycle and it was cold until we stopped, than it was nice, but really fun and we got the best parking... If any of you have been there you know that this is not possible in a car...

So the embarrasing moment.....
the whole stadium was doing the WAVE... It got to us, so Lyle and I stood up, put our hands in the air and joined in... I didn't realize that my seat had closed up, and when I went to sit back down... I fell to the ground.... Let me remind you that we had really good seats, so everyone behind me saw.... the guy next to me was laughing and the people in back were too... Oh my! Lyle laughed... But gave me a hug- I am glad that he wasn't embarressed of me.

REAL won... 3 to 1... We are going to the Finals... YEAH!!! I am very grateful that they won.... I hate it when we loose, but I also hate it when the teams tie... that just makes no sense, right? There is no resolve... no winner, and it really bothers me.

Anyway... If you have not been, go! You can get relativley good tickets at KFC for $15 dollars.

Dream Big

I had a break down this weekend. I found out that someone opened a yoga studio in Heber..... To those that know me, know that this is what I have been wanting to do.. I felt like my dream had been swept from below me.
I know that this is infact not true... and know that if I want it, I can make it happen thanks to Lyle for reminding me of this and lifting my spirits a bit.

So along with this new discovery, I had several thoughts about me, my life, my being, how I live my life and what I want to make differently.. These thought led me to quit my job.. and dream big. I need to act, to stop being comfortable and to risk..

I need to go for it.. I need to do yoga... I need to teach yoga at a place I call my own.. There is no reason that I have not done this, except for that I am afraid of failure... which to me is the worst reason to not do something. I quit my job because I needed doors to open up for me, and I needed to put my focus to innovating myself, my dream and my ideas..

Thanks to my motivational cousin Jeramiah, I have a vision.. He sent me this picture last week, which gave me chills and assured me that IT IS POSSIBLE.

After talking to my current boss at Life Line and telling her that I was leaving, I had an appointment to meet with a women who wants to rent out studio space in Sugarhouse. Little do you know, I am staring yoga classes there next week... It is my own, and I am happy, nervous and excited... I am afraid that no one will come, hehe.... all my current students already told me that they will.

The space is great, although it is not my own yet it is a start to something bigger...

I need a name... If you have anything Creative let me know... If you want to come, COME!
